Basingstoke Medieval History

VCH Volume: 
Hampshire New Series Vol I
St Michael's Church

Basingstoke was for long an important market town in north-east Hampshire, but in the 15th and 16th centuries it also became a major centre of the cloth industry. It was good documentation at this crucial time and offers the opportunity to provide a reasonably full picture of the town, its economy and its citizens. These chapters are being wiritten by John Hare and will be revised before publication.
